Snowed last night. I'm becoming intimately aware of my driveway on a regular basis and I don't particularly like it.
Anyway I shoveled already and it wasn't that bad except it was really really cold. Was listening to Biggie's Ready to die as I shoveled so hence the title of the post. Now I'm listening to Rough House Survivors. Hands up anyone who remembers them.
Now one thing about winter that I dislike is there is no relief at all. How I mean? For instance when its dark and gloomy you miss the sunshine so it depresses you. Of course then you get a day like today where its a bright shining day but that usually means its about another 5-10 degrees colder than the gloomy days so you get sun but at the tradeoff of it being cold cold.
Yes there are scientific reasons for it. Something to do with no cloud cover hence more sunshine but then the warmth doesn't get trapped so we still cold. Some one more science minded can feel free to give a proper discourse on this.
My take on it though is its such a, what word am I looking for here, maybe annoyance to someone from the Caribbean. Why? Well we are accustomed to looking outside seeing a nice bright day and getting warmth, it just sort of defies logic the first time you go out in winter here and its freezing your personals. Oh well, it comes with the territory so I'm not really complaining.
Anyway hope everyone has a good weekend, I'm tired so its relaxation and sleep today.
Now much to say today. Its been a long week. Enjoy your weekend.
Oh wait? Before I forget. Remember my post two days ago on dialects. Well I saw another article on Bajan dialect in the Barbados Advocate yesterday which is kind of entertaining yet brings up a few nice points still. Actually I like this guy's writing and I've got this blog that I haven't posted yet that's based on this letter I once sent to him a few years back when he did an article on well I wont say what yet cause I aint sure I want to post it yet. Its rather funny but I've been warned by some friends and family not to post it cause it may upset the gal dem. :-)
Of course since I have now mentioned it I now have to post it next week. Oh well maybe Monday.
